 Congratulations to our 10U and 11U teams led by Coach Reid and Coach Ahlstrom on their hard fought wins.   Both teams demonstrated focus and an ability to overcome adversity to secure their first of we are sure many Championships.   Coach Powell's 12U and Coach Krewson's 13U team fell short in their first foray into unweighted football.  Each team managed the transition well and over performed, finishing runner up in the very competitive D1.




Building on the success of 2021 that saw 3 Storm teams capture NYS Championships, 4 of our Storm teams play on November 19th to cap of fantastic seasons with Championships.
Saturday's Schedule:

13U Storm Navy vs 13U Elite Bears - 10am McClintock High School.  Coach Krewson seeking his second straight NYS Championship, advancing to the Championship game with a dominating win over the WV Spartans.

12U Storm Navy vs 12U Chandler Lobos - 2pm Mountain View HS. In a rematch of last years' 11U Championship, Coach Powell leads his undefeated team to Mesa.  12U Storm Navy advanced after a hard fought semi-final against the 12U Storm Silver.

10U Storm vs 10U Elite Stars - 2pm Pinnacle High School.  The top seed in D2 defeated the Canyon View Jr Jaguars in the semi-final and Coach Reid has his 5-2 squad ready for the 10U Elite Stars

11U Storm vs 11U Raiders AZ - 4pm Pinnacle High School.   Another top seed in D2, 11U Storm have cut their teeth on a primarily D1 schedule in 2022 with increasing success. The Anthem Jaguars provided a good challenge for the Storm 11U in the semi-final, prepping them for a Raiders team on the rise.


We applaud all of our players, coaches and parents who made the 2021 season a success, which included 5 of our 8 teams making it to their Championship games.
The 11U Storm, led by Coach Erik Powell cruised to their second straight D1 Championship defeating the Chandler Lobos in the Championship game.  The team finished at 8-1, avenging their only loss on the season by defeating the Lobos twice in the playoffs. 

Coach Krewson's 12U Storm team equaled the task by settling the score with the Scottsdale Firebirds, winning their D1 Championship game and ending the season at 8-1. The game was broadcast live on YouTube by Varsity Sports and can be replayed here:  2021 12U Championship 

Coach Ron Lewis earned a second straight NYS Championship, this time leading the 13U unweighted Storm team to the D2 Championship.  The team overcame adversity throughout the season with their "next man up" mentality and demonstrated their improvement by crushing the Yuma Coyotes in the Championship.
